to shrill for this bad law. i feel sorry for them because the mittology they are trying to create about obamacare is very different from the reality most people are experiencing. and when you say you can keep your doctor if you are willing to pay more, that's a very different statement than you can keep your doctor, period, which is what the president said. >> actually, i thought when i heard that, i couldn't think if it was arrogant or we americans were some sort of social experiment in the petri dish. they didn't understand american people for the most part having to pay more means a whole lot more to people. maybe not to people who make a lot of money but to most people. i was surprised when i heard that. >> when you get outside of the washington bubble. i was reading today some the emails and letters that have come into our office. these are incredibly real and profound impacts on people's lives. we had a couple that had sent in and said that their premium were going up by $400 a month. >> that's a lot of money. >> deductible gone up by $1,400. i feel like the federal government jus

the law, about its benefits, its protections, about how folks can sign up. >> we know that obama care is still plagued with problems. >> the experience people are having under this new law, it runs counter to the happy talk we keep hearing out of the white house. >> we're just getting started for the, changes. >> it was a nightmare. they offered coverage for myself, my wife, but our daughter was left off. >> it can save you hundreds of dollars in premium costs every month. >> people are signing up, thinking they're going to get some help from the government and find out it's much, much higher than they anticipated. >> this bill is fundamentally flawed. >> what's important to remember is that the law has helped millions of people but there are millions more who stand to be helped. >> the president's health care law continues to wreak havoc on american families, small businesses and the economy. >> you got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but we're not repealing it as long as i'm president. >> so does the president's pr offensive have any shot at working? pat buchanan joins us. t
more problems with the law as it's being implemented and the law in and of itself in the way it was drafted. >> i don't flow if that press leaf is factually complete, but it raises a red flag. there was an op head in the concord monitor by michael green, i think he's the ceo of the hospital there, concord hospital and he's opted out of the exchange because he said the reimbursement rates they were offered, his hospital, would result in less than what it costs us to provide care. well, that's a death sentence for that hospital. >> concord is the capital of the state of new hampshire. it's one of the hospitals that's not in the exchange. because there's mandated coverage within obama care, the only way this provider is tries to drive down costs is reduce the network and get the hospitals who are in the network to take less than they would normally in payment for the services. so obviously the concord hospital didn't think that was financially viable. but people in new hampshire, can you imagine being in the capital of the state of new hampshire, the conkoshd hospital, if that w
that, again, even if the website gets fixed, there are so many more problems with the law as it's being implemented. and the law in and of itself and the way it was drafted. >> all right. i don't know if that press release is factually complete. it certainly is at least raising the red flag. one other question i want to talk to you about. there was an op-ed in a concord monitor by michael green. i think he's the ceo of the hospital there. concord hospital. and he's opted out of the exchange because he said the reimbursement rates that they were offered, his hospital, would result in being paid less than it would have cost us to provide care. well, that's a death sentence for that hospital. >> right. concord hospital, concord is the capital of the state of new hampshire. it's one of the ten hospitals that aren't in the exchange. we only have one insurer in the exchange. and, again, because there's mandated coverage within obama care, what -- the only way that the -- as i understand it, this provider is trying to drive down cost, is reduce the network and then try to get the hospitals tha
, and the president knows we have ideas. in fact we go back to 2009 the obama care law was passed. all the republicans in the end voted against that bill, but we voted for our alternative. and in fact, the alternative that we had was even enjoyed a congressional budget office score which said that our plan would actually lower the cost of premium, unlike obama care. >> why is the president saying that? he says it yesterday in his speech, he says you have no idea, no alternatives. >> it's more of the same that we've seen from this president in the white house. it's my way or the highway and the public should just accept it. and that's really been the attitude that this white house has been b and people are hurting now. those of us in the republican conference in the house really want to help people with their health care and unfortunately, we know that obama care is just not ever going to get there. the website is just the beginning, because underneath it all is a flawed law that really is not going to give people the kind of health care that they want at the prices they can afford. >> see, here's what
argue that the plain text of the law limits subsidies to consumers in states that have created their own exchange, making it illegal for them to be offered through the federal exchange. michael canon is director of health policy studies at the cato institute. >> if the federal government establishes the exchange, those subsidies are not available, which means the subsidies aren't there to trigger penalties against employers and those individuals. so, what the obama administration is doing is saying, no, we're going to offer those subsidies in the 34 states that have refused to establish an exchange. the law does not allow them to do that. but when they do that, if they get away with it, then those subsidies will trigger, those illegal subsidies, will trigger illegal penalties against employers and individuals in those states. >> reporter: the government argues that the plaintiffs are misreading the law and taking a statute out of context, but that argument was not enough to stop a federal judge from allowing the suit from going forward. david, tell us, why are you suing the federal gover
. >> they sure haven't presented an alternative. if you ask the opponents of this law what they would do differently, their answer seems to be let's go back to the way things used to be. >> well that one's not true either. they may not like the g.o.p. plans but there are plans. you heard some right here. >> our approach the one that is patient based and allows for more flexibility for health savings accounts and people can purchase health care across state lines and a plan that had in it a safeguard for preexisting conditions but did not implement a plan that placed prices. >> why do they keep saying these things and we did not worry they would think about getting caught. karl rove joins us. great to see you. >> great to see you, greta. >> what is this? why are they saying this stuff? there's no contest that it's wrong. >> harry reid in particular is way out there. people have lost their policies between 5.4 and 6.2 million policies have been cancelled. that represents 10, 12, 14 million people. they got a cancellation letter. and the presidenting acknowledg it. he apologized for it. and
haven't presented an alternative. if you ask many of the opponents of this law, what exactly they do differently, their answer seems to be well, let's go back to the way things used to be. >> well, that one is not true either. you know that. they may not like the g.o.p. plan, but you can't deny that the g.o.p. has plans. you heard some plans even right here. >> our approach, the one that's patient-based, the one that allows for more flexibility for health savings accounts. the one that says people can purchase healthcare across state lines and a plan frankly that had in it safeguard for those with preexisting conditions but did not implement a plan that raised prices the way that obamacare does. >> the democrats must think that americans are stupid or something. why else do they keep saying these things. they know simply are not true and would not think they would worry about getting caught. karl rove joins us. nice to he sue, karl. >> great to see you, greta. >> karl, so what -- i mean, what is this? what's with them? why do they keep saying this stuff? there is no contest that it's
